It is about finding our place within the world and that life is not always about being the best, but trying to be the best you can be.
LONDON (PRWEB) May 07, 2015
A man can only escape from his destiny for so long. In a riveting novel of suspense, fantasy and magic, author T A Newman tells the story of Jon Wayward, the unknowing heir to the world's most secret magical society. How will Jon's quite, reserved life transform with the revealing of this secret? "Grimoire" (published by Xlibris UK), creates a new hierarchy in the league of Mages and Alchemists as a new power finds its place in the union of magical elites.
Jon Wayward is dropped into a world where magic is real. Inheriting his grandfather's occult collectors shop, his friends, customers and ancestor's Book of shadows called the Wayward Grimoire, he is made the newest member of an ultra-exclusive magical society that hides in plain sight. Now he is suddenly famous - much to his astonishment. Not to mention he has never been prepared for the responsibilities that await him as a collector of occult antiquities. Cue in mysterious women, murderous lizard people and a pack of tarot cards, Jon is set for the ultimate adventure of his life.
From the magical streets of London to the coastal towns of Devon, Jon treads through danger and witchcraft as he also struggles to find meaning in his newfound fate. Is he really equipped to fulfill what is expected of him? His sensitivity, doubts and growing fears reflect a familiar humanness that remains as a common thread even in a world of sorcery and mysticism.
"This book is about finding oneself and reflecting on the choices we make and how they ripple out and affect the people closest to us," says Newman. "It is about finding our place within the world and that life is not always about being the best, but trying to be the best you can be."
